Step 1: Get a Free Energy Survey

BWP will send a certified resource manager to your facility to conduct a free energy survey, looking at lighting, air conditioning, refrigeration, motors and the building envelope. A report will be generated listing the recommended efficiency retrofits, the cost to perform the retrofit, anticipated annual energy savings, and simple payback.

Business Bucks FAQ

Q. Who's eligible for Business Bucks?
All Burbank businesses with annual electricity usage below 250,000 kilowatt-hours are eligible to participate in this program. Any qualified business location is allowed to participate one time and receive funding up to their tiered incentive cap. Participants prior to July 2015 are eligible for a second round of funding, essentially doubling the location’s incentive cap. A change in tenancy or ownership does not re-qualify that location. The business must be served under a BWP commercial electric rate.
